If there ever is confusion concerning plant products, interpreting the labeling of sphagnum moss and peat moss is high on the list.

Sphagnum Green Moss is a nonvascular, succulent green plant with no roots. It grows in clumps and sheets. Water absorbs directly through its leaves and stores in its cellular tissue, which makes the strands fluffy. The higher the quality the greater the water holding capacity. Home gardeners, florists, and nurseries have discovered ways to put these properties to good use to keep potted plants moist and cool. You can buy green moss wholesale and utilize it to its full potential from places like http://www.willametteevergreen...

While watching British gardening shows, they continuously recommend peat free potting mixes. This is due to the destruction of peat bogs which are extremely slow growing and cannot be replaced in a human's life span. Also, due to the vast amount of C02 released when harvested, it contributes greatly to climate change. Why is America still heavily promoting the use of peat in all things gardening? There are alternatives, but our gardening's shows rarely if ever mention them. Why are we not doing more to protect this precious eco system?
